Panthers Agree to One-Year Contract with C Scott Gomez
Scott Gomez

SUNRISE, Fla. – Florida Panthers Executive VP/General Manager Dale Tallon announced today that the club has agreed to terms with C Scott Gomez on a one-year contract.

“Scott is a veteran center who adds further depth to the middle of our line-up,” said Tallon. “He is a quick and skilled forward, with a wealth of hockey experience including two Stanley Cup titles, who will be a leader for our younger players.”

Gomez, 33, has played in 941 career National Hockey League games for the New Jersey Devils (1999-2007), the New York Rangers (2007-2009), the Montreal Canadiens (2009-2012) and the San Jose Sharks (2012-2013) recording 171 goals with 530 assists. He ranks first among active U.S. born players in assists (530) and points (701) and second in games played (941).

A two-time NHL All-Star (2000, 2008), Gomez has made three Stanley Cup Final appearances with New Jersey (2000, 2001 & 2003), winning the Stanley Cup twice (2000 & 2003). In 149 career NHL playoff games, Gomez has posted 101 points (29-72-101). He earned the 2000 Calder Memorial Trophy, awarded to the League’s best rookie, and was also named to the 2000 NHL All-Rookie Team.

Gomez has represented the USA in several international tournaments including: 2006 Olympics, 2004 World Cup of Hockey and the 1998 and 1999 World Junior Championships.

The Anchorage, Alaska native was originally selected by New Jersey in the first round (27th overall) of the 1998 NHL Draft.
